"Bundling" insurance is when you get a discount for buying two or more types of insurance from the same company. This is commonly referred to as a "multi-line" or "multi-policy" discount.
Bundling your home and auto insurance is one of the most common ways to save money. Most insurers offer a discount for bundling auto with home or renters insurance, and often you can also bundle boat, RV, motorcycle and even life insurance.
On average, those who bundle auto and home insurance can save $235 a year on premiums, according to Consumer Reports.
